Welcome to Simplicity, I am so happy you're here. I know that every decision you make regarding your baby is very important.
Let me introduce myself so you can learn more about the heart of what I do. I am Emilie, a Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM) and the founder of Simplicity Baby Massage
For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about taking care of babies. I think it began when I was 5 years old and my youngest brother was born. He was diagnosed with a chromosome disorder and required a high level of care. My mom brought in a holistic practitioner who introduced our family to lymphatic massage. Since then, I have dived deeper into learning more about the benefits of safe physical touch on developmental, physical, emotional, and mental health, and creating a secure attachment through life.
In my free time you can find me:
Moving my body - whether it's going to a fitness class, walking, stretching, hiking, paddle boarding, or bouldering.
With my people - I'm a firm believer that connection and healthy relationships are vital to a healthy life
Getting my "me" time - journaling, reflecting, reading the Bible, or listening to a podcast
I am always looking for ways to learn, grow, and improve.
My hope is to be able to educate, empower, and encourage everyone that I encounter in my work.
